Just got my domperidone.
I have been having supply issues. My history is I had to start supplementing DS after 1 week because he only gained 1 oz. I nurse him about 4 times a day but I'm not getting much. I've tried Fenugreek and it started off good but now that I've been using it for 4 months I think the effects wore off. I ordered domperidone and just got it today. Does anyone know how much I should start with and when should it kick in?

Go to Dr. Newman's website. Good for you getting that good stuff! It is hard to get. Where did you get it?

Re: Just got my domperidone.
I was on this for the same reason... I started on 2 pills every eight hours and then I took 1 pill every eight hours once my supply was stable. Before meals is best :) It's a real blessing to be able to have this available. Hahahaha I'd pump 40+ ounces a day when Hamish was about 6 mos. (I ended up pumping exclusively b/c we couldn't master the latch )

The important thing to remember is to drink enough and to take it on a regular basis. HTH

Re: Just got my domperidone.
Thank you for the advice. One more question. Is this the kind of thing that once the supply is up I should stop or should I continue taking it. And I ordered it from here

It was pretty quick shipping too. I ordered it on 9/22 and got it today.

I accidentally popped in to this thread, and have no idea what domperidone is. But I think it is sooooo great that you are trying to keep up your supply for your little one. Best of luck mama!

Re: Just got my domperidone.
Wow. I've never heard of anyone taking that little! And it actually worked?!

I was told to take 3 pills, 4 times a day. Of course, it didn't help me, but then again, nothing does. :( Good luck though, mama!

Re: Just got my domperidone.
You need to keep on taking it... otherwise you'll be back to your supply issues.

You can take up to 20 pills per day w/o possible side affects.
